The ‘LIT’ Album Experience

LIT is a ‘lyrical remix’ album where I take mainstream pop and hip hop songs that have an amazing sound and style (but leave a lot to be desired in terms of lyrical content), and I infuse them with my own original, spiritually-conscious lyrics.

My Lyrical Remix – “Eternal”




The Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Huh, it’s kinda crazy, feels like the other day I was just a baby,
Time flies, the years pass by, no lie, we all grow old like Ms. Daisy,
But this society that raised me seems so afraid, see,
Cuz when you call a person old, it’s like a curse word,
It’s like the worst word, it’s like the stick me in a casket drive me off in a hearse word,
Gray hairs make you wanna dye, and them wrinkles on our forehead leave you feeling paralyzed, after you hit ‘em with a little botox,
Advertisers round the clock, telling you let’s turn back the clock,
Tick tock, tick tock, let me clock you with my spotlight,
Stop the clock, pump the brakes like a stoplight,
The way we think about time’s all wrong, messed up, it’s erroneous, I call that counter clockwise, uh
I call that counter clockwise,
I call that counter clockwise,
If you thought you’re just flesh,
If you thought your time was up after you take your last breath,
It’s like your watch lied
Life is more than the chances of this world, true life is the life of the soul,
So now you know, getting old ain’t scaring me, cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,

[Chorus]
Cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,
Yeah, cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,
Now you know, getting old ain’t scaring me
Cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,

[Verse 2]
I: One syllable, one sound, two horizontal lines running parallel bound by a pillar down the middle, same symbol representing the most perfect Roman numeral: one,
Before we reach this station, our soul originates from the spiritual worlds of perfection, no beginning, no end, just like a circular dot, but then at the time of conception, whether you’re ready or not, your soul connects to the embryo, which is more like a box, locked in by material laws, but then this dot and and this box capitalize, together they are drawn, to become one, to become I, I am a human being, but this only lasts a mortal life,
My physical body remains in the world below, acting like a mirror reflecting my soul, uh
Until that day finally comes when it’s time to return, body to the world of dust,
As our soul yearns to come home to the spiritual realms, like a stream to the ocean,
Light ray back to the sun,
We all come from God, and unto Him we return, death offereth life indeed,
So now you know, getting old ain’t scaring me, cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,

[Chorus]
Cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,
Yeah, cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,
Now you know, getting old ain’t scaring me
Cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,

[Bridge]
“…concerning the state of the soul after its separation from the body. Know thou, of a truth, that if the soul of man hath walked in the ways of God, it will, assuredly, return and be gathered to the glory of the Beloved. By the righteousness of God! It shall attain a station such as no pen can depict, or tongue describe. The soul that hath remained faithful to the Cause of God, and stood unwaveringly firm in His Path shall, after his ascension, be possessed of such power that all the worlds which the Almighty hath created can benefit through him.”

So now you know, getting old ain’t scaring me, cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,

[Chorus]
Cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,
Yeah, cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,
Now you know, getting old ain’t scaring me
Cuz I know my soul is living life eternally,
